    Let me add that ALL News networks pander to their base. Why? Because it's not news any more. It's infotainment, whether FOX News, MSNBC, or any other network, whether Conservative or Liberal leaning. And what drives infotainment? Not the truth. That much is obvious. It is all about money. And to that end, Keith Olberman is just as much of a media whore as Bill O'Reilly.

    Well don't bother reading beyond the first few pages if it's a newspaper, because all the juicy, liberal inuendo is typically near the front page. If you want to see how the other half lives... the truth, you might catch the tiny articles of retraction on page 32 when they get caught for lying on page 1!

    Actually, I was thinking of Olberman as more like one of Obama's bitches!

    I'm one of those nutjobs who takes his news from enough sources that the combined juicy innuendo from the left, right, center, alternate dimensions and bizarro worlds combines to make a continuous hum which is fairly easy to relegate to background noise.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    The White House lost the battle with Fox News.

    Too funny.

    Too predictable.

    If the Messiah had grown up in America he may have heard the aphorism that one shouldn't pick fights with people who buy ink by the barrel.

    Yeah, you're right. It's not wise to pick a fight with a broadcaster which has all of its talking heads marching in lock-step, reading off the same script 24/7, and hiding behind the flag of "opinion" while doing everything in their power to project an air of honesty and truth.

    You can't just decide that entities are equable because of general trends. Fox News is worse than any single 'liberal' equivalent, including MSNBC. They are systematically, not just sentimentally, against liberalism and for conservatism.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
